Rangi's Catch

Film (Excerpts) – 1973

G
Anyone
...for the acting profession as well as the country in general, the film is something of a milestone – and we should gain plenty of tourist publicity from it!
– The Evening Post, 16 August 1973
I wasn't acting in that ... I was just playing. That was what [Director Michael] Forlong wanted. He told us not to try to act, just to be ourselves and concentrate on the action side of things. Although there was a script, he didn't seem too fussed about us learning it.
– Temuera Morrison, in his 2009 autobiography From Haka to Hollywood
Not only is Rangi’s Catch one of the best children’s films ever made, it is grand entertainment for people of all ages.
– Reviewer Catherine de la Roche in The Dominion (from her 1988 book Performance)
